Of many possible clinical applications, it may be considered to influence the following issues/symptoms:

  • T10 (Left) innervates the gall bladder and is used for issues such as gallstones, high cholesterol and other digestive issues.
  • T10 (Right) innervates the bile duct and is used for gallbladder/bile duct related issues.
  • Used extensively within the Tam Healing System and Tong Ren Therapy. May be needled and used with tuina and/or tonren therapy.
